Have you wondered how to make a fairy garden? Or maybe you are interested in different fairy garden ideas. A fairy garden is such an easy but enjoyable project to create with children.
We made one at home by painting a terracotta pot, filling with soil, planting some small flowers, and then finally decorating with some pebbles and a fairy. It didn’t take long at all to complete and my girls had a blast making it, so much so that I am sure we will me making more fairy gardens in the future. I have found some examples of different fairy gardens to try, a short video tutorial which shows you just how easy it is to make a fairy garden and tutorials on how to make a toadstool and fairy door to complete the fairy garden of your dreams.
